AND TODAY IS... a very special day for KAYLEE
It's her BirTHDaY... so pop over HERE and wish her a great day!
HaPPy BithDaY from all your FRIENDS in the Birthday Club.
This time my make for Christmas Thru The Year is a keeper...
I'll display it on one of my brothers hangers... it just needs a little holly for the frame top.
The embroidery pattern is one of Gail Pan's that I received at Christmas in July in Albury.
I used DMC floss - red # 815 & green # 936 for the embroidery in this 12inch MiNi.
A-N-D it's only 96 sleeps until the JoLLy MaN comes a-calling...

And last night was Friday Night Sew In... with Wendy...over HERE.
I sat & did a little embroidery by hand... enjoyable
Then I stitched a small item by machine... quick
I used this pattern...
And yes I've made several lately BUT I needed one more for a Xmas gift.
A PLaY/ CoTQuiLT for DD2 friend was completed during the week. It has lovely soft flannel on the back & I left it squishy & cuddly with only minimal quilting. DD2 is very HaPPy with it so fingers crossed her friend is too. The new baby is due in December.
This quilt was adapted from Noah & Friends quilt pattern by Kookaburra Cottage 2008
& the quilt measures 40 inch x 54 inch

Unfortunately my little GS shared his tonsillitis with me... getting better now though.
